Description: B.T.'S Smokehouse is a dry-rubbed and slow-smoked barbecue restaurant...
B.T.'S Smokehouse is a dry-rubbed and slow-smoked barbecue restaurant located in the downtown section of Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Owner and Head Chef Brian Treitman is committed to delivering the very best barbecue to Massachusetts and beyond. Focusing on Southern-style cuisine, the menu offers natural grass-fed beef, chicken, pork, and other meats that have been dry rubbed and slow smoked for up to 24 hours with local apple and hickory woods. In addition to standard barbecue fare, the restaurant also offers more unusual entrees such as smoked salmon, chili made with brisket meat, and smoked turkey and chicken. We are also BYOB, so grab your favorite 6 pack on your way in. B.T.'S has won numerous awards since opening its doors, including the New England Regional Chili Cookoff and placing in the Top Ten Barbecue Restaurants in New England, and the Boston Globe named B.T.'S one of the "ten best places to bask in barbecue".

Great Southern Style BBQ

If you are in the area and like authentic BBQ don't miss this place! Big portions for the price and the sauces are southern style vinegar based. The spicy sauce has a nice zing to it. They encourage bringing your own adult beverages as they do not server them.

Excellent BBQ. The bark on the ribs is super tasty. All the fixins were great. Try the beans and the onion rings. You really can't go wrong.

This is definitely a family restaurant. We took our 4 and 2 year old granddaughters and it was loud with other children scurrying about. We were relieved to see this since our 2 y/o is quite vocal. We thought the BBQ dishes were quite good as were the side dishes The kids loved it. In-between bites they were able to... More

The food was delicious and portions were HUGE. Seating was very limited unless you went outside. Pulled Pork sandwich is my favorite. You can split the fries because they give you so much.

We ordered food from here for a family gathering. They have most things family style so it's great if you want a cook out w/out the cooking! The portions are generous. The food was tasty.

First things first I may have rated it a little low because it has been excellent a lot of the time. The Jerky is all made on the premises and the smoked meats are all prepared the old Wurstmaker way with smoke times and correct humidities carefully watched and done meticulously. I tried everything over a period of time and... More

OK so you want some Q, well B.T.s Smokehouse in Sturbridge Ma, is the real deal. They have been consistently turning out the Best Q in the area. I have tasted some fine barbeque in places such as Charlie Vergo's Rendezvous, one of several "shrines to the smoked meat we love to eat" and Corky's Both which are in Memphis,... More

I have been year twice since moving to the area a few months ago. The food is AMAZING! It gets pretty busy during dinner time and on the weekends (tables can be hard to get), but its worth the wait. My only complaint is that when you get to the front of the line the person at the cash register... More
